Last year Baba had a reptile party for his birthday.
His cousin then had the same company for her birthday in February.
At her birthday he declared he wanted a crested gecko.
From that day he has been saving to eventually afford a crested gecko.
He hasn’t stopped asking about getting one and it has been mentioned most weeks.
A couple of weeks ago a four-year old crested gecko came up for rehoming, due to no fault of its own.
It was a little girl that Mr L and I looked at and discussed before we took Baba to see her, as we knew he would fall in love instantly.
A week later we brought her home.
And we renamed her Flame.
She lost her tail a long time ago, which Baba loves as it makes her very unique.
He instantly feel in love with her.
And I think the feeling is mutual.
And it doesn’t stop with Baba, Boo loves her too.
She is now a firm member of the family and we again have another pet in our house.
Baba’s love for animals have grown and I am even more certain that as an adult his life will revolve around animals.
Its amazing watching his life and passion grow as he gets older each day.
